Disappointing

Parsonage Farm
I grew up around here so was very much looking forward to revisiting the area, family and friends after the trials of the past eighteen months. Unfortunately, our week didn't quite turn out like that. The site has been carved out of a much larger field, and two public paths run across it, so there were constantly members of the public wandering across. On one occasion a man was flying a drone in the larger field, on another a car managed to get in next to the vans, as someone had left the gate open. So security was not great, and the owners live elsewhere (we never got to meet them so no idea where) so it was all too public for us. The roar from the bypass is constant, even during the early hours, and occasional parking noise from the pub nearby. The field itself has hardstandings near the entrance, and two fairly close together at the bottom, the rest is uneven grass, which is where we went. All was well until another couple pitched up far too close to us, mainly because the remainder of the grass is too uneven to get a level bit. The grass was quite long, and then cut midweek, but the clippings just left, which of course resulted in them being walked into the van. I had paid a deposit by bank transfer so paid the balance the same way, as I said we didn't see anyone in charge. I got the distinct impression this is a moneymaking enterprise with little care by the owners. The Park and Ride is close by, which I would highly recommend for anyone heading into Bristol, as the traffic is a nightmare. Heading out of the city however the site is perfectly located. The Angel Inn I have known since I was a boy, but we found the menu uninspiring at best. Far better is the Jubilee in Flax Bourton, heading a few miles along the A370 Weston Road. The Ashton pub (formerly the Smyth Arms) is a family place nowadays, if that is your thing. We did our shopping at Tesco in Nailsea which is easy to find, but there is also (an expensive) Co-op in Long Ashton. Would we return? Possibly, when visiting next time, although we didn't feel any love at this site, which is a pity.

Ideal for a night in Bristol.

Parsonage Farm
We stayed 1 night in this Bristol CL. We are quite sensitive to noise but didn't find it an issues at all here as it was quiet over night. There are not many options for CLs close to Bristol and we wanted to be somewhere close enough to cycle in- which this was is. We went through the Aston Court park estate (just opposite the site) on the cycle paths to the Clifton Suspension bridge and then cycled via the river Avon pathway into Bristol historic dock area. The site itself is well kept with some hard standing, marked water and disposal areas (although 2 units chose to park right beside the disposal area oddly). We never saw the owners but posted the money through their door. Other site users gave us some local info which was useful.

OK CL in convenient location

Parsonage Farm
Stayed here for 4 nights in Jan 2019. It's a fairly basic CL, electric hookups available as well as water and CDP but bins and recycling are at the farm house a few yards up the lane. Unlike a previous reviewer we did manage to find the water tap! The ground is fairly level, there's a bit of hard standing but we were on the grass and despite wet weather it wasn't too muddy. There was some traffic noise, but mostly not too intrusive for us and not as bad as you might think considering how near it is to major roads - which does make it very convenient for getting into Bristol or out and about the area. It's also very close to the Ashton Court estate, a big area of parkland (former stately home and grounds) now owned by the city and freely open to the public - great for walking the dog. The access lane is usually made narrow by parked cars, but it's not very long. The only problem we had getting there was that the directions from the motorway don't always reflect the current signposts, or at least the ones you can see in advance of the junctions, so take a look at your route on a map before you get there. Also, we never managed to see the owners, just put the money through the door - OK it's a working farm so they were probably very busy, but if personal contact matters to you then this may not be to your taste. Free range eggs on sale at the farmhouse (again put the money through the door). Overall, the main thing this site has going for it is the location. It worked for us on this occasion, but we usually go for quieter, more remote CLs so may not choose this one again.

Great Spot

Parsonage Farm
Rang owner, Charlie, very friendly, said he had spaces so we drove here on the day! Fairly easy to find, narrowish lane to come down but not a problem. Small fenced off field, with water, chemical disposal and newly installed electric, we chose to not use ehu for our 2 night stay. We pitched up, rang owner he said he would pop to se us later. Turned up early evening, very nice friendly working farmer, couldn't have been nicer. Bus stop 2 min walk away, to Bristol or Weston super mare, so is pub. Would definitely return for a future stay.
